Mojave Rain

Be Still

Be still and go on to bed
Nobody knows what lies ahead
Life is short to say the least
We're in the belly of the beast

Be still, wild and young
Long may your innocence reign
Like shells on a shore
And may your limits be unknown
And may your efforts be your own
If you ever feel you can't take it anymore

Don't break character
You've got a lot of heart
Is this real or just a dream?
Rise up like the sun
Labor 'til the work is done

Be still and one day you'll leave
Fearlessness on your sleeve
And when you come back tell me what did you see
Was there something out there for me?

Be still, close your eyes
Soon enough you'll be on your own
Steady and straight
And if they drag you through the mud
It doesn't change what's in your blood
Over rock, over chains
Over track, over plains
When they knock you down

Don't break character
You've got a lot of heart
Is this real or just a dream?
Be still, be still
Be still, be still

Over rock and chain
Over sunset plain
Over trap and snare
When you're in too deep
In your wildest dream
In your made up scheme
When they knock you down
When they knock you down

Don't break character
You've got so much heart
Is this real or just a dream?
Oh, rise up like the sun and labor and 'til the work is done
Rise up like the sun and labor and 'til the work is
Rise up like the sun and labor and 'til the work is done
